Ric Flair misses return to the ring in Japan due to leg problems
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jan 26, 2013 - 2:35:49 PM

PWInsider.com is reporting that Ric Flair - who is currently in Japan - ended up not wrestling during today's All Japan Pro Wrestling show due to a leg issue.

The two-time WWE Hall of Famer and 16 time World Heavyweight champion was supposed to be tagging with Keiji Mutoh - better known to most U.S. fans as The Great Muta - to take on Tatsumu Fujinami and Seiya Sanada.

His replacement was his son Reid, who was scheduled to take part in an earlier match on the show. Reid and Mutoh lost their tag match.
